Petrol Vs Diesel Engines
while petrol hybrid cars are very efficient, they still can't match the fuel economy of diesel hybrids. The scepticism that however still remains attached to diesel-powered cars is that they are slow, but with the introduction of the turbocharger, engineers are proud to say that that is no longer a problem.
Global warming, rising sea levels, erratic rainfall patterns and increased pollution are some of the factors that have led to a shift by car manufacturers to produce smaller engines with automatic transmission that are tuned for efficiency rather than performance. I mean back in the 70's, when Chevrolet used to make 7.0L engines called 'turbo fire' on manual rear-wheel coupes, who would have imagined that a time would come when a car would come fitted with a CVT on a 900cc engine and this was considered normal? They say that the beautiful ones are yet to be born, but in the motoring world the beautiful (and great) ones were long born. By saying this I wish I had time to delve into the relegation that car design has and will continue to suffer, but let me stick to the debate at hand for now.
